Been to many beaches all round the world. This beach is so laid back. Sand and great comfortable sun beds. The sea is perfect. No stones, hardly any tide, shallow to enter, no weed, no jelly fish when we have been, no s***, and so warm even in September. Love it!!

This beach can get very busy in holiday season but can also be a lot of fun as long as you aren't offended by nudity. Easy to get to and definitely safe for swimming.

Was here during a gay bear event and it was full of fun friendly people, mostly gay but even the straight people... More

Have been coming to Balmins for years and love it. Surprisingly some reviewers seem to have an issue with seeing older people naked but surely the whole point of a nudist beach is that it is for everyone irrespective of their age. Anyway, it's a lovely friendly beach within easy walking distance of the town. It has a nice little... More

The beach is a very nice clothing optional beach. The beach in itself is getting smaller and smaller every year, since the sand is not getting refilled so at some times of the year it will be very crowded. Hopefully it will be refilled again soon.

This was a very polite & chill beach. 75% nude. Nice clean water, calm & warm. There is a bar stand with reasonable beach prices. A life guard was on duty too. 1st time at nude beach. Would go here again.
